2024 Superflex Rookie Mock Draft 6.0: Post NFL Draft – Round 1

The Nerds team is back with a post NFL Draft Superflex Mock Draft. Let's check out Round 1.

They say quarterback is king in Superflex and it seems that way in the NFL as well. Six quarterbacks were drafted in the first 12 picks on the NFL Draft. Did that form hold true in Superflex Mock Draft 6.0?

Let’s dig into Round 1.

Superflex Rookie Mock Draft 6.0 – Round 1

1.01 Caleb Williams, QB, 6’1″ 218lbs

Chicago Bears

The Bears are doing for Caleb Williams what they didn’t do for Justin Fields—stocking the team with weapons. After adding early-round offensive linemen the last two seasons, this offseason, they brought in skill players (Keenan Allen, D’Andre Swift, Gerald Everett) and added the top prospect in the draft, Caleb Williams. Williams steps in on Day 1 and is a top-12 fantasy asset with a top-5 ceiling.


1.02 Marvin Harrison Jr., WR, 6’3″ 209lbs

Arizona Cardinals

MHJ is the next highest-opportunity pick that feels safest. Jayden Daniels and Drake Maye’s landing spots aren’t as great for fantasy. Marvin Harrison Jr. is going to feast and should be at least a low-end WR1 this season, and he’s got overall WR1 potential.


1.03 Jayden Daniels, QB, 6’4″ 215lbs

Washington Commanders

Jayden Daniels landed in a great situation with the Washington Commanders. Daniels gets Kliff Kingsbury as his offensive coordinator, who produces fantasy-relevant quarterbacks. When you add the rushing aspect of Daniels’s game, I would not be shocked if Daniels has the best fantasy numbers out of all the rookie quarterbacks.


1.04 JJ McCarthy, QB, 6’3″ 219lbs

Minnesota Vikings

Get ready for years of hearing Scott Hanson saying, “JJ to JJ!” on your Red Zone broadcasts. The rumored Vikings landing spot for JJ McCarthy came true, so he is the solidified fourth spot in Superflex for me. I trust the offensive mind of Kevin O’Connell to turn a collegiate winner into an NFL winner. Between Justin Jefferson, Jordan Addison, Aaron Jones, and T.J. Hockenson, JJ McCarthy will also be a fantasy winner.


1.05 Brock Bowers, TE, 6’4″ 243lbs

Las Vegas Raiders

Even though the Las Vegas Raiders are one of the perennial dumpster fires in the NFL, I can’t deny the talent and future Brock Bowers has. Two wide receivers produced top 24 last season in the Raiders offense that started Aiden O’Connell. Brock Bowers can step in and immediately be a fantasy contributor. Additionally, they drafted Michael Mayer, who should fill the in-line role, leaving most of the targets to Bowers. Bowers offers immense upside and will be an anchor for your fantasy squad for years to come.


1.06 Drake Maye, QB, 6’4″ 223lbs

New England Patriots

Widely viewed as one of the top quarterbacks in the 2024 draft class, Drake Maye was selected third overall by the Patriots. It’s wild that he was routinely selected as the 1.02 in Superflex dynasty mocks leading into the NFL Draft but has now tumbled to sixth. I understand that the current skill position players in Foxborough are somewhat less than ideal. That said, Maye has top traits and should vie for immediate playing time. In a format like Superflex that so heavily values the contributions of a starting quarterback, I will take a top talent like Maye at 1.06 every time.


1.07 Malik Nabers, WR, 6’0″ 200lbs

New York Giants

For me, the decision was between Rome Odunze and Malik Nabers. I normally would have taken either of the top 12 remaining quarterbacks, but this year feels a bit unique. Michael Penix is going to sit, and I think Bo Nix was significantly overdrafted. I have Nabers slightly ahead of Odunze, so I stuck with my board.


1.08 Rome Odunze, WR, 6’3″ 212lbs

Chicago Bears

Rome Odunze‘s biggest concern post-draft is his competition for this year. He’ll be on the field beside veterans DJ Moore and Keenan Allen. Shane Waldron used 12 personnel formations heavily in Seattle, so unless he leans into 11 personnel, we could be in for a rough start for fantasy. That said, Keenan is on a one-year deal, and it’s come out that Caleb Williams campaigned heavily for Odunze in the lead-up to the draft, so I’m banking on talent emerging over time, something that Rome has in droves.


1.09 Bo Nix, QB, 6’2″ 214lbs

Denver Broncos

I say the same thing every time: quarterback is king in Superflex. Getting a top-12 NFL quarterback pick at this point of a rookie draft highlights the depth of the 2024 class. It was tough, but I chose Bo Nix over Michael Penix Jr. because Nix will get his shot much sooner. The Broncos have Sean Payton at the helm and some decent weapons to boot. The fact that they traded up for his guy in Troy Franklin makes me like him that much more.


1.10 Brian Thomas Jr., WR, 6’3″ 209lbs

Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars have their Calvin Ridley replacement, and I love this landing spot for Brian Thomas Jr. Trevor Lawrence has yet to reach his ceiling, and they have an opportunity to grow their chemistry together. If Thomas and Lawrence develop a special connection, this has a chance to be a stud tandem for the next decade.


1.11 Xavier Worthy, WR, 5’11” 165lbs

Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs taking a wide receiver who ran a 4.21 40-yard dash at the combine seems like a perfect match. In addition to his blazing speed, Xavier Worthy has good route running and good hands. Once he catches the ball, he has extraordinary YAC ability. He fits the Chiefs and Andy Reid’s system perfectly. The biggest knock against him is his lack of size and physicality. Yes, there are a lot of mouths to feed in Kansas City, but the upside of Worthy is too hard to pass up at this point in a Superflex draft.


1.12 Jonathon Brooks, RB, 6’0″ 216lbs

Carolina Panthers

The final pick of round one goes to Jonathon Brooks. Brooks lands with the Panthers, which seems like a bad landing spot on paper. Brooks, under David Canalas, should be able to thrive and be heavily involved in the passing game. Brooks may come off slow due to the ACL injury, so his fantasy output may not be there early. At some point during the 2024 season, Brooks’ talent will outbeat Chuba Hubbard and Miles Sanders. Don’t let the Panthers landing spot stop you from getting a top tier running back talent in Brooks.
